Fuck Buttons

Fuck Buttons are finally back with a new album. Out 22nd of July in the UK (23rd for the US) the new record is titled Slow Focus and follows the brilliant 2009 release Tarot Sport; a wonderful building wall of distortion, pounding rhythms and blissful electronics that was backed by one of the greatest live experiences I have ever had. They’ve had a few exciting years culminating in tracks being used at the recent Olympics opening ceremony.

This time around pitchfork reports that Slow Focus will be a self produced effort released via ATP Recordings. Debut Street Horrrsing was produced by Mogwai guitarist John Cummings and Tarot Sport by Andrew Weatherall.

Slow Focus comes in at just 7 tracks so expect some epic pieces as before.

01 Brainfreeze
02 Year of the Dog
03 The Red Wing
04 Sentients
05 Prince’s Prize
06 Stalker
07 Hidden XS

We’ll update as soon as any tracks or audio previews become available.

Blanck Mass – White Math [Listen]

Blanck Mass, the electronic solo project of  Benjamin John Power, one half of the excellent noise duo Fuck buttons has a new 12” White Math / Polymorph out 21 August 2012.

The 12” released via Oneohtrix Point Never’s Software Recording Company follows last year’s stunning self titled debut LP. The album was an ambient noise masterpiece that evoked otherworldly sounds in its waves and washes of noise.

The new track White Math pushes the sound in a different direction; evoking the sound of 90s analog techno, it tips its hat more to the sound of Orbital rather than the pulsating drone of Fuck Buttons.

Listen to White Math here:

The 12” will be available from the Blanck Mass bandcamp page.
